Mark Lamping Hired As Jaguars Team President

The Jacksonville Jaguars have hired Mark Lamping as their new team president according to a team press release. Lamping has previously spent time with the St. Louis Cardinals and as the CEO of MetLife Stadium. Lamping will report directly to Jaguars owner Shad Khan and will oversee all non-football operations beginning on Feb. 27. Lamping spent 13 years as the president of the Cardinals and has been the CEO of MetLife Stadium since 2008.

"The Jacksonville Jaguars have vast potential, and I'm honored that Shad Khan is asking me to play a leadership role in reaching that potential," Lamping said in a release via e-mail. "We have the opportunity to revitalize the franchise and build something special, memorable and hopefully historic for the league, our partners and especially Jaguars fans, who will be central to our mission. My wife Cheryl and I are ready to get started and excited to make Jacksonville our home."

From the press release, here are some nuggets about Lamping:

  • Lamping was responsible for business and facility operations among many other duties on behalf of the baseball club, and played a significant role in the renovation of the old Busch Stadium and subsequent revitalization of the Cardinals franchise in the mid 1990s. Lamping later led the development and funding of the new Busch Stadium, which opened in April 2006.
  • Lamping reported to a board of directors that included the owners of the Giants and Jets and was responsible for overseeing all facets of the stadium development, construction and operation, including business operations, sponsorship sales, marketing, event business, new media and more. Lamping was a major force in helping to bring Super Bowl XLVIII to MetLife Stadium in 2014.

*Props to BCC commenter Joe Fisher for calling that Khan would hire a team president.
